 If we are going to do well this season we need those two firing on all cylinders, we need Torres' goals and Gerrard's manipulation and control of the midfield. We only saw it in glimpses against Wigan whereas against Chelsea and in our previous victories against Napoli, Blackburn and Bolton it was present in much larger doses.

 Where we are badly off is if something goes badly wrong at the back, where we don't have a lot of players to cover. Up front if Fernando or David Ngog are not able to play we don't have options in terms of out-and-out centre-forwards. Those are a couple of areas where we need to look for help in the January transfer window.

 I'm sorry but I cannot see the drama you want to make of that. This group of players were not involved in the Carling Cup, I've explained that a dozen times, I don't know how many times I've got to go back to the Carling Cup. But you're right, it was a disappointing night [against Northampton] and that disappointment could have carried over today.

 I don’t think he [Fernando Torres] is firing on all cylinders. Fernando’s [Torres] performance was a lot better [than last week against Birmingham City]. He is a player who needs more games, more time and more training. Manchester United do not often surrender possession, so it was difficult for him. We’ll get a tremendous amount of use from him this season.

 We deserved to get back in the game, we were unlucky to go 2-0 down. Conceding late is always tough, and we’re disappointed in that but otherwise we made a really good effort to bring us back into the game. If we had more composure we could have seen the game out.

 To use words like catastrophe is a bit strong unless you are talking about winning the league. Our aim is to get better, to get to the Champions League, and maybe that is where I have got to have my focus.

 We have had a remarkably hard start to the season. Our performance today was clearly a lot better than our last two Premier League performances [a narrow victory over West Brom and a goalless draw with Birmingham City]. We were playing against a top team and we can take a lot of credit from the way we went about our business and got ourselves back into the game.

 I certainly regard him as a friend. Whether he regards me as a friend you'd have to ask him. I spoke to him in a jocular way, I asked him the question 'Does it mean now I've taken the Liverpool job that we don't speak to each other?' - he didn't put the phone down but he made some cutting remark. The friendship hasn't been affected by me becoming Liverpool manager. I'm sure he will offer me a glass of wine when I go to the game on Sunday and I'll offer him one when he comes here. But during the match there is no room for sentiment and I'll be hoping desperately things go our way and he'll be hoping things go his way.
